“ A great evening ”
We did two activities with Pukka: a Northern Lights Sailing and Reindeer Sledding. Both were unique, very fun and well organized. They were very responsive over email and answered all of my questions prior to booking, and their website was really clean and well laid-out. Once we got there, both tours were great.
On the Northern Lights sailing, we were on a modern catamaran with 4 other people, where we were able to enjoy the Northern Lights on deck and slip back inside for snacks (really good fish soup) and warmth when the lights disappeared for a bit. Would highly recommend the tour, and it was worth the price. The one thing to note is that it is a little shorter than some of the van trips you may do, and it also stays closer to the shore so there is more light pollution (not as good) but you also get great views of the surrounding environs from the water (beautiful, and a good hedge against no lights). Lastly, we were lucky enough to see the lights but I appreciated that they had a partial money-back guarantee if the lights didn't show up during your trip.
The reindeer sledding and Sami culture experience was great as well. This was a bigger trip (they work with another tour group, and there was a few buses ging to the reindeer camp), but the value of the excursion was a fair tradeoff for the larger experience. We loved meeting and feeding the reindeer, and our 10 minute sled ride (the "short sledding option") was perfect--I don't think the longer sleigh ride (~30mins) would've been worth the extra price, at least for us. Another highlight was our time with the local Sami reindeer herders. They were really friendly, and so welcoming. We learned a lot about their culture and way of life, which was a unique and interesting addition to our time with our reindeer friends.
All in all, would definitely recommend either tour, or booking something else with Pukka during your time in Tromso!

“ Tromso adventures ”
Travelled with pukka travels for 3 trips all of which were excellent and great for kids. Reindeer sledding and Sami experience was fab. Great pics and the Sami experience talk was charming and hilarious. Arctic sailing safari was beautiful even though saw no wildlife. Catching fish was an absolute highlight for kids. Northern lights sailing was magnificent. We were so lucky that the lights were at their best the day we chose. Skippers on both trips were so helpful with kids and full of interesting information about tromso and Norway. Our kids are 2, 5 and 7. Northern lights trip was easy because kids slept below deck in comfort. We couldn't have enjoyed it more. Thank you pukka travels xx

“ AMAZING ”
We booked this tour a little last minute but worth every penny. Had a fantastic experience, the crew were amazing (even bringing drinks out to us on the deck) and the atmosphere was brilliant. Crew were really helpful in providing tripods and giving advice on camera settings. To top it off we saw a incredible show of the lights and the experience was 1 in a million. Highly recommended.

“ Memorable & fabulous experience ! ”
I had specially organised my northern lights trip with Pukka travels and they had an amazing 80% discount if one was not luck to see the first time to go on the second trip. The skipper was Jonas. knowledgeable and friendly guy. I was unlucky to see the lights the first day at sea but the following day on Supermoon we had a wonderful experience to see the northern lights. Alex & the other staff was helpful in organising my dog sledding trip too. I was very satisfied with there service and had two of my friends book with them too. I intend to come in summers & review the midnight sun with my family. Tromso has some nice place to dine & visit. I would recommend them in a heart beat to anyone visiting Tromso.
Keep up the gud work!!

“ Best way to spend an evening in Tromsø ”
We had a spectacular Northern Lights cruise with captain Jonas. We were lucky to see the lights from the moment we stepped on board. But even if we hadn't, the friendly atmosphere, skill and generosity of our host (not to mention his delicious fish soup!) made the evening one to remember!

“ Northern Lights Sailing Tour ”
I highly recommend this tour with Pukka, guides are amazing people. I got confussed about the date of my reservation and they made the arrangements to solve my problem. I took the sailing tour and it was fantastic. We saw the northern ligths and the guide prepared a delicious meal for us. Everything was perfect!

“ Amazing experience ”
Went on the ultimate overnight tour and it was absolutely amazing. The crew were so friendly and professional. The boat and cabins lovely and the experience brilliant.
The highlight for me was sitting in the hot tub on the stern of the boat, with a beer, watching the northern lights across the entire sky whilst it was -15 degrees outside! Breathtaking!!
We didn’t manage to see the whales but it was great fun trying and seeing the stunning fjords.
Thanks to the crew and other guests for making it such a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend. Highlight of the trip.

“ A fantastic experience! ”
While we were not lucky enough to see the Northern Lights, we had a wonderful evening at sea. Our skipper was really knowledgeable and his fish soup was delicious.

“ Great Sailing experience ”
It was a very comfortable sailing experience with a modern catamaran. We enjoyed the comfortable cabin and also the view of northern lights from the deck in warm suits. The skipper was great: skilled, acknowledgeable and fun. He did a tasty soup for us.

“ Great experience on water and on land! ”
We booked two trips with Pukka: The Northern Lights Evening Sail and the Reindeer Experience and both were just wonderful! The team is incredibly nice and everything was organized in a very well and ecologically friendly way. We can highly recommend Pukka and would always book another trip with them when coming to Tromsö. Thanks a lot to Alice and her team!

“ Great experience on Northern Lights Sailing ”
We did the Northern Lights Sailing in December and despite the fact that it was too snowy to see the lights, we still had a great time. There were 10 people on the boat and we could sit inside or outside (with the flotation suits provided). Outside, the boat felt private and not crowded at all. Our guide was very friendly, welcoming and helpful. We were greeted with tea and coffee, and had delicious freshly made fish soup in the middle of the trip (which we watched be prepared with a fish caught earlier that day). While it would have been nice to see the lights, just being out on a boat in the Arctic (especially when it’s snowing) made it worth it for us. If you see the lights, I imagine this would be an even more incredible experience. We also enjoyed lying on the reindeer skins on the front of the boat while we sailed, which I don’t think you would be able to do on boats with some other tour companies. I would highly recommend this experience with Pukka Travels.

“ Gotto love’m!! ”
So happy with this trip!! We sailed out from Tromsö in the dark under the Northern lights to spend a few days on a fantastic catamaran! We caught a lot of huge cod and other kinds of fish, halibut among others that we prepared for dinner on the boat, huge northern lights every night!!! The service was top of the line with a amazing skipper who kept us all in a great mode! Hoping to go back as soon as I can! Would recommend traveling with these guys to anyone who wants a trip out of the ordinary! Such a blast!!
